Singh on 19/03/2020 5 star rating

I returned the Pioneer SPH-DA230DAB unit after a few days because it was a bit sluggish and not so easy to use. Other features were good though! I got it exchanged for the Kenwood DMX7018DABS instead and paid the difference. This unit is far better and much faster

Great unit
Frankie on 19/03/2020 5 star rating

I went for this unit after advice from car audio centre. Originally I was going to go for the Pioneer SPH-DA230DAB.
